r.t. talks to burn or door in the former leader of the radical and soviet naam group whether on the ground she says america's wars have made a terrorist just as dangerous as those it claims to be fighting. archie is in chicago sitting down with longtime activist former leader of the weather underground radical group that operated back in the sixty's and seventy's and now a clinical law professor at northwestern university and director of the children and family justice center bernardin dorn thank you so much for joining us today pleasure now you obviously have an extremely diverse biography hated by so romanticized by others from being on the f.b.i.'s top ten most wanted list to now being a law professor and dealing with children's rights which one of these stages serves your purposes the most i don't think of them is that distinct i feel like i've been obsessed with a couple of things my whole life certainly the question of justice and certainly he
swore in peace you obviously throughout your career have received so much criticism . and your tidies and actions were very radical about this group the weather underground. did some things that were terrorist and you say this entire time that you were really fighting for peace we've become used to really since nine eleven as an example of american terrorism but we were never terrorists in fact i think the whole. antiwar and. black freedom movement in the united states where militant had militant edges really were always restrained and if you look around the world at the time we in fact were tactically very restrained our rhetoric was sometimes a little inflamed and hyperbolic but our our actions really were quite restrained.
in that revolution and insurgency takes is constantly changing we just saw the mideast phrasings who could have imagined that before it happened when those events broke out a lot of people in the united states were. sort of fearful that the same could happen here on that kind of scale do you think that's possible of course it's possible you know we grown up in an era of american exceptionalism right the last seventy years where the united states somehow isn't bound by the other lies of history and of course we are bound by the loss of history militarily the united states is obviously still in full swing with iraq afghanistan libya military power still what do you make of that and what do you make of these particular wars and also what the peace movement where is it all this is right that well i think that the u.s. economic damage both globally hundred seventy four military bases you know all over
three live wars three shadow wars i think that. world i think that the militarization at home is also quite significant since nine eleven and the i'm rattling of all the pictures of the sixty's where is the peace movement i think you may very see the peace movement in the veterans coming home and i'm not sure why that is i think that people oppose the war there's no question that the american people oppose the iraq war continue to oppose it and think we should lead. the escalation in afghanistan they supported it you know the day after nine eleven and have opposed it ever since and and they already opposed the libyan so i think the american people are not you know anyway. right haven't been able to change the tremendous military control of this democracy so we have you know the staff workers but i don't want you to i don't think you should
read in my eyes how much the american people don't like these wars and then i think the second major force people i work with are the veterans coming home because as in vietnam and as in every war they come home and see the truth about what they've been asked to do and i think this current glorification of the troops can't hide the reality of what happens when these young kids women and men come home and they are the real truth tellers with us imperialism we've touched on a little bit yourself as well as quite a significant number of other people believe that the u.s. power is dying down both politically and interaction with other countries economically what does it really stand now realistically well i think that it's destroying itself american hegemony is no longer can be and we have too many rising economic cultural powers in the world i think that gives us here in the united states tremendous opportunity as well as
a tremendous risk the risk of course is weak. other country other empires decline but where their military stays very strong and there is a tremendous danger you can turning everything into a military opportunity instead of as a social and human community do you think. that declining economy is also like a very significant large contributor to the fact that the united states is losing its power abroad just the fact that so many people here are struggling and are not contributing to the economy or the country as a strong force the tremendous acceleration of that gap. in the united states in the last decade or so is it all yes most of us are getting poorer i kind a handful less than one percent of that relation are getting extravagantly wealthy but you know you look from nine eleven till today and you say you know yes the
people who perpetrated the tragedy of nine eleven to justice there were many ways to be there. right there in front of an international tribunal you could have had a police action but three war. millions of people being displaced separations of countries accusations of three countries that couldn't bring the united states. certainly has imposed a tragedy and that's one of the latest obvious developments to the war on terrorism of course the death of bin laden i want to ask you as a law professor under what legal basis was that committed by the united states i heard a legal commentator yesterday on the radio when i was driving home and i was laughing out loud because. he claimed that under the u.n. charter the right of self-defense was in operation here so defense yes maybe after nine eleven the operation that was carried out against this terrorist cell would
have been justified entered. national ten years later you know invade another country with your military and let them do it. on the other hand we could take this moment i think as an african he for peace really ok now it's time to declare an end to these wars which came at least a rationalization by u.s. presidents was just you know to prevent nine eleven from happening again why don't we see this as a moment to withdraw from afghanistan and iraq just for openers do you think that's possible or is it also possible that this could this moment could be taken as an extra opportunity to really intensify efforts in afghanistan well afghanistan's not going to go well no matter how you define going well it is not possible to win these wars whatever that means and everybody knows that the dilemma is you can hear
the ground now for pakistan you know against pakistan and there's always going to be a ran a reason bailable for the military aggressors that seem to dominate you know we've seen the united states people want an end to these wars they voted for the current president as a peace candidate and now we've got two more wars so let's have an end to this this is the death of bin laden should be a moment where we can say yes now withdraw american withdraw from i think patient what are the chances of that really well i don't we don't know until we do we insist on doing we don't know until we insist on it and i think it's our only hope is demilitarizing the entire american economy so was it leaves occupations going on because politicians love the occupations i think that they serve the interests of the you know. the late empire of capitalism if you will there about oil you can't
say well we didn't intervene in bahrain but we didn't. in libya why. and he knew how you carry reasons why it will stand there it was very difficult standards of course double standards we have the fifth fleet in bahrain libya has a whale and is near to europe and has no air defense system yeah there were very practical reasons why we pick and choose to declare a state of war on the us government that was seventeen and you were on the top ten most wanted fugitives list and you were known to say that the real terrorist is the us government yes do you still maintain these sorts of statements i think we were rebellions i think we were. we were dissidents american dissidents and the classic tradition. you know we were we thought it was possible to join the global struggle of revolutionary war at that moment in the sixty's so i understand how
incredible but. i think now as many people do metaphor is just so terrible and it's just so terrible that it works so much suffering on everyone. that i wish we had kind of kept the rebel. rebellion metaphor instead of war metaphor but the other things that we said and thought i stand by them about the u.s. government being terrorists i didn't come that long ago from what i read this was only in ninety three so just you know decade ago do you still believe i do believe that i think you know the bombing from the year in order to save people is a terrible idea it goes bad people don't like it and that terrorism usually is terrorism because it's killing civilians. but i think that you can call it you know a message of. war to free people but i think that of
course the wars of wars of empire always been wrapped in the. paper and ribbons of democracy and freedom you know education and freedom to people it's terrorism when you yes i mean civilian populations occupying and to make sure i understand correctly in this war on terror the u.s. is also a terrorist is that what you mean that is what i mean i think if you look at the terrorist act of nine eleven which created tremendous suffering and hardship here and around the world i mean it wasn't just americans who died in the world trade center and bin laden's activities certainly made. thousands if not millions of arabs and muslims suffer as well. and there's nothing to justify it it's totally a parable. it's also true that the response of the us government. or an
occupation in both iraq and afghanistan are not justified. it's ten years later whatever we're doing in afghanistan it isn't about al qaeda and bin laden and as you can see from the arab spring the world has moved on the arab world is. really struggling for the same things who are all we all want real democracy not paper democracy real economic futures for our children living in more harmoniously not being afraid all the time what does the media doing these days when it comes to all of these issues they take the defense department. press releases and read them as news uncritically we need a robust independent critical media and especially critical of power we're going to endure and thank you so much for your time of pleasure.

thanks marina you're watching the sports news not to yell to close the solemn shot of eyes back big samantha saucily the final of the taliban open in rome to claim the style of the season right before the french open. russian football held as a near miss the chance to get some of the premier league standings up the joy the former champions will be. and also south korean k.j. choi grabs the players' championship title and the biggest prize money all of the two of the playoff women but they could solve. the first up ice hockey where finland of the new world champions up to big things with some style in the final on sunday fans defying the odds as they thrashed last is bronze medalists six one was one one off the two periods called the underdogs out of five with outright lie in the final twenty minutes took place that fast well style since one thousand nine
hundred five might be also edged out this way it's despite the loss with. the fost that was named the two in the months and b.p. . and russia have been denied a medal and in those roles to the czechs the red machine going down seven for a month netting you have three for the win as well and you get what you claim to brace for the disappointing russian schools. moving on and in football champions and these have missed the opportunity to finish the week on top of the russian prime a league the clash bringing together the only teams to have long been a championship since two thousand and six and it was the current holders who did better at the time frame is just as deadly as these left that makes it one nailed up what they didn't score and things it was a great group all that stuff like the nice guy at the knees. up was long gone. and the distance would dearly believe i did see a big hit nobody nobody was mean scrolls to put robin two one in front.
any how well would gather themselves for an equalizer and the beautiful one an example because that goal was very much outside the area that is to sit here at least one point this weekend. sunday's first game failed to reach the same high it says i'm currently now in moscow played out a goal as drew was the home side in the opening forty five minutes with muscovites lucky to go in level at the break kept on a dribble room and doing everything in his power to help the number get back on track but he separates were denied several times by a car goalkeeper sergei not ruben and russia's highest paid the black kevin ronnie was also amongst those stopped by the ruben in the dying moments so will mail is how it ended up. elsewhere spartak moscow who have been having a nightmare season to date seem to be gradually recovering the last of its lefty
blades but managed to nab all three points away to relegation for us and really a survey out of by the young couple of nineteen for sport back in the seventy second minute to seal the final result of one nil. to good for a stall flaming the two one win in the moscow region the marchioness it opened for the needs of the skis man on twenty nine minutes after he found himself one on one with the goalkeeper and then pavel my of double to us girls late in a quick attack right before half time at the very beginning of the second hall visitors called one back making it to one but that was it as the house held on to the victory which moved them up to fifty in the current standings. with a stove i mean it's a preview i'm very good with managed to when we play the right way playing a lot of attention to controlling the ball i recheck was good today as we scored twice the only unpleasant moment was when we conceded to go through a chance to break but often it's with
a very concentrated and didn't let it happen again. well football now means tonight that maybe the newly reinstalled english premier league was brought home to call the automatic champions league spots are still very much on the new england's chelsea guaranteed one of those describe joy at what you call solve itself and the only other teams would have been a shot in second place also lost to alstom villa because themselves could now be overtaken in third by match the city who are just two points behind with a game in town as well as a little pull into the europa league spot on their own lottery to know when a town filled west ham on the first team to be relegated from the top flight off the losing to fellow strugglers begun and games lost and full of means they wigan blackpool wolves all blackburn will by themselves in the two remaining dropzone places. and while the glory days of back for a yacht suffer historic sunday in the netherlands the dutch giants securing their first amassed a crown in seven years after beating the only side who could have stopped them at

a great second grand slam all the year next week. about asked. also we have now switched spots in the new rankings with the russian moving up from a two step. it's great to be the champion of rome but love this tournament for many years of in the semifinals before and to come back and and through it on clay especially to thing this is my second title and right clay means a lot this is a tough draw many great players here and so to be the champion means a lot to me. meanwhile no stopping no big jock itch on the mound still this season is closing in on the leader mcguinness is all time record winning streak of forty six matches posting his thirty nine victory in a row rafael adults shocked by the joke for the second time on late losing his ball consecutive mosses final this season they were also really easy six four six for school and adding to the dull struggles and suspended is no longer the favorite had
